Managing Technical Debt for Software

Technical debt occurs when a design or construction approach is taken that’s expedient in the short term but that increases complexity and cost in the long term. Whether it results from ignorance, accident, or strategy, all software-reliant systems carry some technical debt. If managed well, some technical debt can accelerate design exploration. Left unrecognized and unmanaged, accumulated technical debt results in increased development and sustainment costs. This course is designed for professionals who develop and maintain software-reliant systems to gain a better understanding of

  • how technical debt manifests in software
  • what developers, architects, and managers need to know about technical debt
  • how to manage technical debt effectively

This one-day course emphasizes the importance of intentional and strategic management of technical debt that is supported by architecture-focused practices.
